trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effect. they try to oversimplify everything in this, but is there some break through in this point of republicans saying you know what, the debt isn't such a serious problem? >> there's no break through. i think it is a big deal that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is always the thing, with this spring of deficit hawk, there's always in some future the gre
if baghdad." a personal story. his latest story is "panic." paul rieckhoff, executive director and founder of the iraq and afghanistan veterans of america. from 2003 to 2004 he served as army first lieutenant in iraq. let me start with michael about the cost figures. i have to call it the b.s. that was sold. this war was going to be paid for by cheap gas. cheap gasoline. somehow were they going to open up the pipeline from iraq over to america, would get all that stuff? we get first dibs? we got nothing of the kind. let's start with the lives. 190,000 dead people. >> if you remember famously general eric chinseki said we would need more troops to do this and he was dismissed. paul wolfowitz did make the crime iraqi oil revenues would be able to pay for this conflict. and not only would the selling the war point and the costs of the war, you know, in your last segment you made this great point about the media. it's even -- you can go even further than that. the media was complicit. the media took an active role in selling this war. they met with wolfowitz. there's one famous meeting where y
of paul line situation where even though it's going to be in the bill, i wonder where the bill is going to get 60% and jam the action in the house. it's got to action or the house won't act. >> chris, the problem with the house majority, the republican majority is that, first of all, it's highly difficult to move those right wingers. they are all from safe districts. and so it is difficult to put pressure on them. i do think, however, it would be possible to embarrass john boehner into at least staging a vote. i remember president obama in his state of the union speech, don't the parents of newtown deserve a vote? don't the children of newtown deserve a vote? so let's at least force the house into an up and down vote on this bill. >> sam, will that work, that kind of an appeal? >> yes, it will work because a number of house republicans who ran in 2010, including some in pennsylvania, obviously representative griffin from staten island and representative peter king as well from new york. >> delaware county. >> exactly. >> they have to be careful. >> they do have to be careful. they have

, but it was really hidden. and paul fari's piece is really good, but there was a line that said the press wasn't a success, but it wasn't a failure either. it made me think about kids' t-ball games where nobody's a loser, everybody's a winner. and there's a lot of revisionism that goes on there. where a lot of reporters did their jobs, and that's true and great. but the most damning thing in that entire piece is the great walter pinkus wrote a lot of critical things for "the washington post," was a skeptic of the war. and he averaged, i think, page a-18 for his wonderful coverage. while, as you said, all the whiz bang, golly gee, patriotic, rah-rah stuff was on the front page of both "the washington post" and "the new york times," by and large. >> and it was backing up all the op-ed writing, which was all war hawkish anyway. pinkus was a great reporter. it was only in the days after we realized there was no wmds in the days after the eration that people began to write a lot of those stories in "the washington post" and say, wait a minute, all along we should have done better than this. >> but
's not a reasonable question to look at the cost of your action afterward to see if it justifies it and when paul wolfowitz says the only problem is that, you know, the war went on after we reached baghdad otherwise it had been great up until then is almost like saying if we had an arm of a million giant flying robots things would have turned out better. it's denying reality and to ron's point, you ask them how can they think this way, they're not concerned with the real world, with expertise, with measuring cost and benefits because they think they're above it. they don't pay the costs. this is all a giant lab experiment for them and they know better than the intelligence people, they know better than the -- >> it's a stupid answer, though. because admiral yamamoto who is not a bad guy, he didn't want to attack us at pearl harbor, he'die he would have said if it had stopped at pearl harbor it would have been a good war for us. from the time we arrived in baghdad, the war was over. no, it just began! >> your last thought, ryan. >> they ran an experiment on the whole globe and it failed and at thi
-- and this is what paul ferry, who i leak, he's done great stories, didn't get to, the big story at the time was at the white house, bush and cheney were perpetuating a gigantic swindle. >> the piece today, he points out the problem of any kind of journalist. if you're us autoing government sources to get to the real sources, even your favorites, the ones that are mavericks and honest with you, there weren't enough of them. you're not on the ground and looking around the spy agencies, the defense intelligence, a lot of those agencies like the c i'm a were skeptical of the war. maybe the top guy, george tenant wasn't. but the men in the troops in the belly of it were thinking about this war being b.s. >> yes, john wrote a subject about this and talked about the loneliness of being a new republic writer against the war. >> because there was a lot of push for word. >> and john was forced to write elsewhere about his doubts. but he was saying there were career cia, career state department people. there were cadres of people horrified of what was being done with their work but they weren't being
